I don't know since I wasn't there, but I would guess that drugs and sound issues (not being able to hear each other due to poor stage monitors) had something to do with it. A lot of shows from that era were very sloppy. Some of the July 69 stuff is horrible, but some of it was amazing too.

A perfect example of the drug and sound issues working together to completely ruin a show is Woodstock....Total dogshit...Bobby looks so dosed during that show, his eyes look like they are going to literally pop out of his head. You can see the unbridled tension in his face...If anyone has not seen the footage from the Woodstock 40th anniversary bonus discs, I would highly suggest it. If nothing more than to see how badly they were capible of playing.....Im sure getting shocked every couple of minutes while dosed in front of hundereds of thousands of people did not help the performance either.
